Oh wait...that's not a category. well, i'd nominate it for something.


That'd be "Best Track". I've not heard of Vietnam, but based on the description, I'd probably dig it. I'll have to search! Thanks Dale.


Dale check out Brighton, MA as well it sounds like what you are describing.


Great recommendation, stereos. I downloaded it today and have been listening to it all the while zoning. Track 2 is especially delectable. Pretty, upbeat guitar picking is always utterly listen-able. And it does sound a little like Vietnam, the singer eerily so actually. VietNam might just take it a little further on the instrumental.


Glad you liked.

No offense to you Grinderman fans out there, but I just listened to their album and I am just not feeling it.

Beyond the amusing (IMO, poorly sung) lyrics, what's the draw? Because, IMO, the music is meh at best.

The music itself isnt supposed to be special. It's just a good old fashioned rock and roll record. The draw is the incredibly literate lyrics with Nick Caves's passionate vocals. He isnt the best singer out there but again he isnt really supposed to be either.

Sorry, I didn't feel it. The music wasn't rock n' roll to me, but more like bad garage band rock.

Oh well, I don't mean to trample on anyone's taste, just was wondering what folks saw in Grinderman.

I saw Grinderman perform on Letterman a while back, and they burned the fucker down. I previewed the same song I heard them play on the show on iTunes, and I didn't like it nearly as much. It was easily half the tempo, and not nearly as rockin'. I love Nick Cave, too, so I was kinda disappointed.

Best record of '07 for me is easily 'Sound of Silver', although MIA comes close. Best track comes between these two, as well, with MIA's 'Bamboo Banga' and LCD's 'Us V Them'. Good year for the Murph.

Seeing LCD was second best concert of the year for me. If you think the record is good just hear it live. Murphy can FN sing!

Battles won out due to it being such a small intimate crowd before their album came out and they blew up. They brought the rock too. Much better live than on CD, which I thought was impossible due to the complexity of the album, but damn did they pull it off. To watch these incredible musicians playing multiple instruments at the same time time with such precision was just wow inducing.

I've seen LCD in Philly, and they were incredible. 'Yeah' was probably one of the best live perfomances I've ever seen, and I was amazed to hear it sounding almost exactly like it does on record. With how complex Murphy's production is, that's no easy feat. The crowd was going batshit for every second of it, too. I've never seen so many glowsticks in one place in my life! :lol:

What's Battles? I need some new music.

It's hard to describe. It stradles a line of being math rock and electronic diddling while still managing to sound immediate and vital not over produced.

I reviewed their album in the 'best new music' thread. I'm not promising this will help you 'feel it', but it might give you an idea of why I like them. What have you actually listened to?

Not a bad summation -
We got to talk Battles some more too S4G, I can't recall you having mentioned them before. I love that album. They're actually a bit of a metal-related group for me, as some friends of mine who are massive fans of helmet (John Stanier's old group) first played them for me - one of their earlier e.p's. Actually the first time I heard them I thought perhaps the song was an extra cut from Shadow's 'The Private Press' I hadn't heard before, as it reminded me more than a little of 'You can't go home again' - not the most astute observation in retrospect, but the the synthesis of live music production and sampling, as well as music that sets an almost cinematic mood, and seemingly simple but complex rhythms and polyrhythms are some things the group has in common with the dj.

I swear I must have mentioned them around february when I saw them. Yeah they are sorta metal, a little post-rock too on the early EPs. I was really taken back when they added the "vocals" and it took awhile for me to get used to it. I was really into Lynx in HS which was another band they came from. And obviously there is Ian Williams from Don Cab as well. Lots of talent in the band.

Brilliant record! Polyrhythmic, beach boys style psychdelia is a good description.


You know I keep seeing Battles pop up and I'm going to have to give them another listen. I really hated the whole album after a couple of listen but I saw them live on Jools Holland a couple of weeks ago and they were one of the best acts I've ever seen on that show, it really was something special.

The band interplay in Battles is amazing. Each musician brings something different to the table and the all combine to create music thats more than the sum of it parts. It doesnt sound like all the parts should go together like they do but that's it brilliance.

I used to think this might make them something of a 'musician's band' - you know, one admired more by guitarists and bass-players for their technical proficiency and skills rather than appreciated for their music itself - but I was wrong; quite a few hip indie chicks love them, especially the warped and sampled vocals - which you don't hear any of on their earlier eps.
The fork's May review of 'Mirrored' gives a pretty good idea of what they have got going on.


On a completely different tangent, I also think Pitchfork got it exactly right in their comparison of Bonde De Role's new ep Marina Gasolina
with MIA's excellent first album.

There was a women's underwear company using the title track in a commercial on Australian tv recently, but they had to pull it when Portugese speaking viewers complained about the lyrics concerning snorting speed and cunnilingus.

Album

-1- The Flying Club Cup: Beirut
This LP really knocked me out. Full of invention, bravado and all kinds of loose yet totally sophisticated musicality, it's a LP full of ambition and abandon by a guy called Zach Condon, aged about 21 and on the strength of this, a major talent indeed.

-2- White Chalk: P J Harvey
-3- Voice Of The Seven Woods: Voice Of The Seven Woods
-4- Kala: Mia
-5- Sound Of Silver: LCD Soundsystem.
